Please help me recover deleted/accidentally formatted pictures on Verizon cell SD memory card!!!?

Please help recover lost/accidentally formatted pictures on cell phone SD mem card!! Please!!?
Hit format on Verizon cell under memory card – it erased 900+ pics/videos. PLEASE HELP RECOVER!!?
Ok – I am now officially having a bad day :o (

I was in the process of moving pics from Verizon Env Touch
512 San Disk memory card –> phone memory so I could install a larger memory card. I wasn’t thinking & touched the format button thinking I could move pics into a different order. I should have realized what it meant – I wasn’t thinking. I really thought there would be a warning if it was going to delete everything — like, move pics to phone memory first or proceeding will erase all memory card content — but no such warning. Instead, a garbage can, the worst thing to ever see start dancing around on your cell or camera, came up –

I immediately tried to cancel it, but it didn’t – it erased all 900+ pictures on my memory card, along with some videos. So of course, I am pretty devastated – baby puppy pictures & family photos that meant a lot to me. Before I recently got this new phone, I had to go into Verizon to get a software update on my old Env – after it stopped texting because of old software…Verizon’s "update" resulted in a non functioning phone, erased contacts, and all 400+ of my phone memory pictures erased — Of course no one there checked to see if my pics were all under memory card memory or even warned me a software update could do the damage they did and erase everything – nice. The 900+ pics I just erased were on the memory card at the time they erased all of the ones that were in phone memory. So, now everything is gone & I’m really upset and hoping you can help me get these pictures back!!

After my Canon camera once trashed every picture on the memory card, I started using cell phone cameras because I figured there was less risk of losing everything again. I purchased a program once online to try to recover lost PC files and it did not work – at all so obviously just because one is not free, does not mean it works.

So, PLEASE HELP me find a program or tell me about one you have used that worked for this situation!! Some programs I have read about are free, some are not. I do not know if one works – for sure, and would like to know if you know of one that does work for SD phone memory card 100%. I found some, that I listed below and a list of recovery utilities from PC World – maybe someone knows of ones that are not good and ones that are. I looked online too but am really hoping someone can find excellent user reviews for a recovery SD phone memory card or has used one that works. I don’t want to download one to use, get a virus or download one and try to use it and end up with it totally ruining the chances of me having another program recover the pictures. PLEASE HELP ME!!! Thank you!!!! :o )

At this moment I don’t have the hookup or device to get the SD card into my PC USB port. When I got the card, I don’t think there was a compatible one so I never knew what to buy but need to get one. The card came with 2 adapters — Micro Adapter and Micro to SD Adapter– that it looks like the card would go into – then the adapter into something else that goes into the USB port but I don’t know what to buy or where to buy it. It’s a 512 MB memory card – now I will be using the 8 MB so hopefully I can get one device for both cards to go into the PC USB.

So, please help me find a program to get back accidentally formatted and erased Verizon San Disk memory cards for cell phones – maybe you have done this and used one that works – or can find good reviews I cannot. Please help!! Thank YOU!!

Here are 2 programs I found, along with a list of recovery utilities from PC World – maybe someone knows if any of these work or know some do NOT work. Any help is GREATLY appreciated – you have no idea how much!!

1)Advanced Photo recovery…

2)PC World there was Restoration program :…

3) a whole list of recovery programs listed on PC World – some for memory cards, some for other situations…

    You may try asoftech photo recovery which helped me before. You can download trial for free

    Trial version allows to view recoverable photo only, and full version costs only 30 bucks, so I bough it without trying. Luckly it worked. Just that scan may take long time depends on hard disk capacity.

    You can try to recover your files from SD card with Easy Drive Data Recovery software:

    It uses unique modern algorithms to recover files that other software either recovers incorrectly or is unable to detect.

    Read the stuff below – but the product recommended here can recover pictures from a card after a format – depending…….

    You can very often recover deleted pictures from a camera memory card, phone, PC or USB Memory stick. However, to increase the chances of being able to recover pictures after they have been deleted you must not save any new photos, files or data to it.

    When you delete pictures (or any files) from a memory card or USB memory device the data itself isn’t deleted, just the file system pointers that says where the data for those files is located. The area where the deleted picture data was stored is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead.

    If and when that happens, then it is too late to recover your deleted pictures so it is very, very important that new pictures or files aren’t saved to the memory card in the meantime.

    One of the easiest ways to see if your deleted pictures can be recovered is to try some photo recovery software.

    One tip is to try a demo version of a commercial product that will scan the memory card for deleted pictures and show you exactly what pictures can be recovered.

    At least that will show you if you can recover the deleted pictures or if it’s too late already. You can find more useful information on recovering deleted pictures from a USB memory stick or camera card at
